I dream in literature.


Wendy Vardaman





In symbol.  In endless connection & open endedness.  In uncertainty & ambiguity.  In undecideable binaries.  In unsatisfactory hermeneutics & (de)constructions of meaning by communities of (un)like readers.  In paradigmatic shifts & disrupts.  In unreliable narrators who sometimes tell the truth.  Descriptions that have no connection to objects they purport to.  In characters simultaneously.  In sincere irony.  Ironic sincerity.  Sincerely yours.  In yours sincerely.  In the always already & the already always. 










Wendy Vardaman is the author of Obstructed View, co-editor of four anthologies, including Echolocations, Poets Map Madison and Local Ground(s)—Midwest Poetics, co-editor of Verse Wisconsin, and co-founder of Cowfeather Press.  One of Madison, Wisconsin’s two Poets Laureate (2012-2015), she has three adult children and has never owned a car.  Wendy Vardaman is online at WendyVardaman.com.
